Gluten free items (a notice from Trafford CCG)

Our practice is unable to prescribe any gluten free products as per guidelines from Trafford CCG, please refer to their notice below:

Commissioning Policy for Gluten Free food

Following a NHS England Consultation and local engagement by Trafford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in early 2018, a decision was taken by Trafford CCG Governing Body in March 2018 to stop prescribing Gluten Free food. The CCG has amended its Gluten Free policy to reflect this change.

Trafford CCG will be working with Trafford GP practices, Pharmacists, Public Health and other health providers and retailers in the implementation of this policy change to ensure that patients who may be affected by this are informed and are fully supported.
